Westell Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:WSTL) says its Communication Network Solutions (CNS) business unit has new fiber access infrastructure products in the pipeline. The upcoming offerings will improve the efficiency and economics of delivering new wireline and wireless services, the company asserts.
“The solutions we are developing include fiber management and connectivity devices, and specialized termination assemblies, to accommodate ruggedized, low-profile optical fiber cabling at the edge of the network,” said George Wakileh, Westell’s vice president of global business development and M&A. “These solutions enable scalability across multiple deployment scenarios in both greenfield and brownfield applications while lowering deployment costs and reducing service turn-up time.”
“To meet the ever-increasing bandwidth required for delivering quality broadband and future 5G wireless connectivity, our customers need to greatly expand fiber-optic connectivity closer to the network edge,” added Stephen John, Westell’s president and CEO. “We are developing a suite of access solutions designed to simplify and speed fiber deployment in central office, outside plant, and customer premises environments. The common denominator is to enable network densification, technology coexistence, and the convergence of data centers within central offices so that operators can efficiently deploy high-quality, higher-speed connections.”
